Don’t get away from it all, get to it. Live music and entertainment, shopping, nightlife, dining, on and on - that’s Nashville. Shelby House, in the Lockeland Springs neighborhood of East Nashville can be your vacation headquarters in the heart of the Nashville scene.
Mid-Century Brick Ranch - simple and efficient. What more can I say - I love this house and this location. Each of the three private bedrooms has a queen sized, comfortable, double sheeted bed and room for all your stuff. Everybody shares the bathroom but surprisingly this works better than you would think. Wireless internet will keep you connected, cable TV can keep you informed. Central heat and air will keep you comfortable. Starter supplies like paper towels, soap and TP are also stocked. Other standard amenities include a washer and dryer, full sized kitchen, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, refrigerator and dishwasher. The kitchen table is unique. A local metal artist made the boomerang and it seats 4. Out back there is an enclosed porch, casual dining table for 4, and a charcoal grill on the flagstone patio.
Your furry, 4 legged family members are welcome. We do allow pets with their proper supervision. There is a doggie door in the laundry room that leads out into the fenced yard. It has a big tree with squirrels. Just up the street is the Shelby Dog Park. We do ask that pets be crated when left alone in the home.
About 1.5 miles down the street is the eastern edge of the Cumberland River and the Shelby Avenue pedestrian as seen on abc’s “Nashville”. Parking here is free and you can walk over the bridge into the Lower Broadway area. Once downtown there are other options for transportation including the free Music City Circuit green bus. This is where you will find the Country Music Hall of Fame, honky tonks like Tootsies and Legends, the Hatch Show Print store, Music City Center, Wildhorse Saloon and much more.
Within walking distance is the Shelby Bottoms Greenway and Nature Park. It is one of the true jewels of Metro’s Park and Greenway system. This 810 acre park offers 5 miles of paved multi-use trails and another 5 miles of primitive hiking trails. Along the trails, visitors can enjoy boardwalks, scenic overlooks, interpretive stations and seven rustic bridges. The area is well known as a haven for migrating birds and other wildlife and a new nature center is under development to be located near the railroad trestle trailhead at Shelby Bottoms.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Bryan and I have been innkeepers for over 15 years now. We came by this profession quite by chance as part of a grand New Year’s resolution at the turn of the century. We bought a small motel and vacation cottages in northern California. It was rewarding to take this humble project to its full potential. In 2006 an offer that we couldn’t refuse came along so it was time to reshape our future again.
Prior to our midlife crisis Bryan was a civil engineer and I was the mom. As it turns out these are great prerequisites for inn keeping.
How and why we picked Nashville as our vacation destination of choice is a long story. Visit Nashville too and maybe you will feel the attraction.
Why the Owner Chose Nashville: The sign near our house in California reads - “Cromberg, population 140”. Since we live in a sleepy mountain community, vacationing to busy cities seems normal.
Family history research might be the first reason we landed in Nashville. Many of our early ancestor’s roots started in Kentucky and Tennessee so we vacationed here. As a practical starting point, Nashville is well centered to explore most of the eastern United States.
The rich cultural diversity and true Southern hospitality in Nashville will have you sipping sweet tea and asking “How you’ all doing this evening” in no time. Welcome and enjoy your stay.
The Unique Benefits at this House: All of our vacation homes are truly located in Nashville, just a couple of miles to the Lower Broadway entertainment area. With our easy to use inquiry and secure reservation system - Webervations, you can book on line.
